Kids4Community, a 501c3 non profit, raised thousands of dollars to help detained children while cleaning up the oceanfront.
Hundreds of volunteers joined Kids4Community over the past weekend, to help kids separated by their families, while doing community work. For every pound of trash collected, the organization donated $50 for kids that are affected by immigration separation. Eighty-five pounds of trash were collected at the end of the event. Kids4Community donated $4,250 to help pay for legal fees for separated immigrant services.
The money was donated to Interfaith Community Services where they are working one on one with families.
Kids4Community was founded by 14 year old Kenan Pala 2 years ago and is a 501c3. The mission of the organization is to help kids help the community by actively engaging them in volunteer work. Just last year alone, Kenan’s nonprofit contributed to people in need by assembling over 5,000 hygiene kids through various events. They made 2,500 care packages for victims of Puerto Rico, Mexico, and Irma, assembled over 3,000 brown bag lunches to be distributed to homeless shelters, and generously served and provided food for over 600 homeless people.
